My family and I joined Allison on her ghostly tour last night. We all had a great time as she guided us around and shared her many stories. If you are going to do a ghost tour this is the one you want to do.

My husband and I enjoyed the stories. We've been through colonial Williamsburg several times during the daylight hours, however it was really neat to hear the history and be there after dark.

This Ghost tour was a perfect mix of history and spookiness. Our guide keep the tour interesting and add a perfect amount of humor. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants a little history behind the haunting.

There is no charge for children under 6 but we ask that parents keep them under close supervision so they do not distract other guests in the group.
